DFI LANPARTY "B" Canterwood and Springdale - Head to Head - Benchmarks - 3DMark2001 SE

We've got two very capable Pentium 4 based chipsets under the spotlight today from Intel based on DFI's new line of LANPARTY "B" motherboards for the enthusiast. We compare the more expensive Canterwood to the cut-down Springdale chipset but tweaked up by DFI. The results may surprise!

3DMark2001 SE

 

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

 

Looking at the above results, we once again find the Springdale right on the Canterwood's tail.

 

Overclocking Tests

 

As mentioned earlier on, the maximum stable FSB we were able to achieve with each of the motherboards was a disappointing 220MHz (with Super Patch enabled) on the 865PE and 225MHz on the Pro 875B. As a result, the CPU clock rate was increased to 2640MHz and 2700MHz respectively.

 

 

 

It's interesting to see that even though the i875 has a 5MHz FSB (or 60MHz clock speed) advantage over the i865, the variation in performance is almost non-existent. Evidently "Super Patch" is playing a role here.
